I checked in today and found that there are so many sub-collections on this page that I wore my finger out scrolling down to the forums. A lot of these sub-collections don't even have anything in them. What's the poop? Has the staff all been prescribed medical marijuana or what?

I just noticed the same thing. Everything is all messed up. I suspect the voluminazis had a greasy hand in this.

Someone got ahold of the Adview library, it looks like. I had started posting these commercials a while ago, so I guess I won't post anymore of them. However, they didn't really need to put all iterations of each commercial in the sub-directory. That's why when I posted some of what I had, I put the videos in huge files, instead of posting individual commercials.

Adding insult to injury,... under Utica Beer it claims to have 55 ads, but really only has about 4-5. They are just repeated a lot. There is a Prell shampoo ad under Utica Beer, maybe I should consider that a mistake in our favor.

Each ad is actually unique, but they have such slight differences that they seem to be the same. I know, because I have downloaded the entire library from itunes, and watched them all.

Since these are from an ad agencies, most likely they would film the commercials, changing things ever so slightly, then allow the company to choose which ones to broadcast.

But still, does IA have to add each product line as it's own sub-directory? Why not keep it as "Adview", and then break them down within the adviews sub-directory? I mean, when I go to Classic TV, and I scroll down to the forum, my computer keeps popping back up to the top to allow for the Adview sub-directory to load.

I don't want to complain, because IA is far better now than it was a year or so ago, but I would really think it would be beneficial if all those sub-directories could be moved to Adviews, and place Adviews in the sub-directory of Commercials.

Just my $.02

I agree, There is really no reason sub-directory "Pepsi" should be on the "Frount" page of Classic TV.

It looks lie the Archive got hit with a spammer.
